Went here on a Friday evening during our vacation on Kauai, mostly because I was familiar with Aldrine Guerrero from Ukulele Underground and knew he was going to be playing there. It's a sports bar, the crowd seemed like mostly locals. There's not a big area for the entertainers (basically a corner where they sort of tuck themselves), but Aldrine... More

After our kayaking/hiking tour with Ali'i Kayaks (read my previous review on them), on TC's (our Ali'i Kayaks guide) recommendation, we stopped by Rob's Good Times Grill. The service was friendly, the pupus (appetizers) were half off, and the food was yummy. We ate the ribs off the pupus menu, the fried calamari was to die for, and the garlic... More

We stopped here for a quick beer and appetizer. The bartender was really sweet and made several local recommendations. The calamari is excellent! It looks sketchy from the outside but inside is a locals paradise. Great happy hour deals to take advantage of and would go back!

Stopped in here for Happy Hour a couple of times. Nothing fancy but seems quite popular with locals. Currently all appetizers are half price starting, I believe, at 3pm. That draws a crowd and on one of our visits we enjoyed a combo plate appetizer which ended up being our dinner. Service is prompt and very friendly.

This is really just a sports bar, but the food was quite good and the wait staff friendly. Thursday night is trivia night, so get there early if you want a seat.

We discovered this mostly locals bar/restaurant on our last visit to Kauai. A girl we met recommend that we go there to hear a local ukulele musician. He was amazing. The food is fantastic and affordable by Kauai standards. The tempura ahi bites are our favorite. Watching game 7 of the NBA finals. Lots of locals and vacationers here rooting... More

Found this place by accident. Great place for luch with lots of TVs. They are a sports themed bar which suits me just fine. One of the few places on Kauai with A/CService was great, waters were refilled and server was sweet and polite. Had the french dip and wife had the burger. All were very good. Cold beer and... More

We went for live music that was supposed to start at 4; but didn't arrive until we were leaving around 6. The service was rude and completely inattentive and they charged $1.25 for refills. That said, was some of the best food we had while on the island. We would go back because of the food itself; just know what... More

We came here to watch the NBA and NHL finals. They had TVs everywhere and their happy hour was fantastic. Half priced pupus (apps) and good sized beers for like $3. I would suggest it to anyone looking to find a place to watch a game.

Thank Breen77
